Bespoke Biking is a not for profit, social enterprise. We are a team of people who love cycling
and enjoy cycling around the area.  We are dedicated to helping people realise how easy and fun
cycling is, especially riding in a group. We have taught adults who have never ridden; we also have
a great team of mechanics ready to fix, service or repair your bike.

We also take donated bikes, refurbish them and find them new homes.

Director Bespoke Biking CIC

Heather started Bespoke Biking back in 2012 as she saw an opportunity to help everyone cycle more.  She began doing lessons and led rides but quickly realised people wanted to have advice and help on maintaining their bikes.  She also realised that cyclists love to be sociable and that a cafe environment was a perfect place to meet up, go on rides, and
get your bike fixed at the same time.  So began the dream of a Bike Hub for 
Winchester.  Several years on and we have the main Bike Hub and Café in town opposite Primark, and the wonderful Handlebar Cafe at St Catherine's Hill.  She still loves teaching kids and adults to ride and even gets out riding sometimes.  Her favourite rides are out and about around Easton.


Alastair has volunteered for us every Wednesday.  During Covid he completed his Velotech Platinum Level instructor training.  He now makes sure our Wednesday CoGS sessions run well. And that we have refurbished bikes ready for the good causes we support or for sale outside the shop.

Joe Joined the team in April '21.  His main job (as well as a mechanic) is to co-ordinate all our bikes for hire and to supervise the store.  Joe enjoys building, fixing and tinkering on all bikes. He loves his mountain bike and enjoys nothing more than heading off for the hills with his bike in his camper van and hitting those trails.

Heroes and Heroines

We have a fantastic team of volunteers ranging from young people to retired. Volunteers work with us to help refurbish our donated bikes and they learn skills along the way.  Some do work experience, some do a couple of hours per week, some fortnightly, We are developing a bike mechanic academy to offer training and courses.  Watch this space.
